John’s Rant: What to rant about?

Well this week it has been a bit of a busy one seems one job after another keeps flowing, combined with home renos has made for some challenging times. Now don't get me wrong I love to be busy, I just forgot how long it actually take to properly paint the inside of a house.
 
This flows quite nicely into talking about renovating your website and updating your theme. While these tasks at first seem simple enough you go out buy some brushes paint and and new theme. The simply get started on the changes but hold on not so fast as I started in on this home project.
 
There is allot of prep that needs to go on before applying the fresh coast of paint, you need to clear the walls move the furniture, patch all the holes sand them down and then start taping up. Once that is done you begin applying the paint. This in of itself take a fair bit of time.. Once done sit back have a beer and let it dry. Then do the reveal by removing all the tape.
 
So how does this fit into sprucing up your WordPress website? Well this is the time to do a fair amount of prep and rethink everything you have running on your site as well as what is going to change with the new theme you have chosen. I have found recently that this is not thought though by some people when they start their site renos. They simply think replacing the theme will solve everything when what is needed is a rethink about all the plugins they have running as well.
 
So if your looking to do some site renos keep all this in mind.
 
Plus after the plugins I have a new section.

User Session Control
The Lowdown:
This is another in my long list of multi site plugins it is simple enough in its usage and allows you to manage user sessions and know when and who is logging into your network. A very useful tool to see what is happening simply install activate then head over to the admin panel it provide and see who has been login in you get their IP who they are and if need be you can destroy the session. all in all pretty nice

securemoz wordpress security plugin
 
The Lowdown:
This is a great little tool to run a security audit on your site. It runs 27 different test and let you know the results and if it finds anything worn let you know how to get it fixed and even offers some ways to accomplish this auto-magically for you. A nice addition to the security of your site.

the Lowdown:
This plugin looks to be pretty nice i did not particularly like the install process which made me add an email to create a temp account aside from that it is pretty nice. I like the creation of the popup and how you can determine its display as well as adding am image. all in all pretty nice.

John's discussion this week about a project.
So to add a bit more relevant material for the show I am adding this new section where i will discuss some issue I have had with WordPress this week.
 
Well the past couple of weeks has seen me doing some work on a Woo-commerce project and some customizations for the display page. This was in particular with the X-theme and its single product view
 
Something that was asked for was to move the tabs from the bottom of the page to the right hand side and then make it into an accordion. That is accomplished by adding some code to the functions file and making changes to the woo template and then adding some custom script.
 
so to start add this to your functions file
//adding woo functions just for fun
// Removes tabs from their original location
remove_action( ‘woocommerce_after_single_product_summary', ‘woocommerce_output_product_data_tabs', 10 );
// Inserts tabs under the main right product content
add_action( ‘woocommerce_single_product_summary', ‘woocommerce_output_product_data_tabs', 60 );
 
This moves the tabs to the right
 
then change your code on the tabs.php file to this
<?php
/**
* Single Product tabs
*
* @author WooThemes
* @package WooCommerce/Templates
* @version 2.0.0
*/
if ( ! defined( ‘ABSPATH' ) ) {
exit; // Exit if accessed directly
}/**
* Filter tabs and allow third parties to add their own
*
* Each tab is an array containing title, callback and priority.
* @see woocommerce_default_product_tabs()
*/
$tabs = apply_filters( ‘woocommerce_product_tabs', array() );

if ( ! empty( $tabs ) ) : ?>

<?php echo do_shortcode(‘[clear]'); ?>

<div class=”x-accordion”>

<?php foreach ( $tabs as $key => $tab ) : ?>
<div class=”x-accordion-group”>
<div class=”x-accordion-heading”>
<a class=”x-accordion-toggle collapsed <?php echo $key ?>_tab” data-toggle=”collapse” href=”#collapse-<?php echo $key ?>”><?php echo apply_filters( ‘woocommerce_product_' . $key . ‘_tab_title', $tab[‘title'], $key ) ?></a>
</div>
<div id=”#collapse-<?php echo $key ?>” class=”accordion-body collapse”>
<div class=”x-accordion-inner”>
<?php call_user_func( $tab[‘callback'], $key, $tab ) ?>
</div>
</div>
</div>

<?php endforeach; ?>

</div>

<?php endif; ?>

 
then you add this java code to the custom script in your customizer. 
jQuery(document).ready(function($){
$(‘.x-accordion-heading').click(function(){
$(‘.accordion-body.collapse').hide();
$(this).next().toggle();
});
});
 
After that you simply stylize it as you normally would any css.
 
Hopefully this may help someone save some time in the future.
